THE BEAST pt. 2

...it's finally here, and i can't really believe it actually exists...
below are some pictures of the isis "shades of the swarm" 12xLP box and it's contents. there was no practical way to photograph the whole thing as it's so expansive, so i just tried to capture some of the interesting details, albeit poorly. it's hard to tell from the photos, but the monochromatic sleeves have images and text printed in what is essentially high gloss clear ink - which you have to see in person to be able to detect/decipher properly.

anyway, these shots will give a bit of an idea as to what result the box experiment rendered.

this thing has be made possible by conspiracy records in europe and robotic empire in the u.s., and we (isis) are all grateful they were crazy enough to take this on. i would suggest checking out their websites for updates, info on price, release date, etc.

special thanks to andy, joris, dave, james o'mara, james plotkin, and aaron horkey for helping pull this shit together and makin' it shine.

It looks very nice! Can't wait to lay my hand (and ears) on those. Looking forward to European release.

Best regards!

Supreme. It's to bad these will sell out in a day or two, and then will be on ebay for 500.00.
